DC ARTS CARDS

If you live in DC, or are just heading here for a visit, take a look at this printable deck of illos highlighting 14 of my favorite DC ARTS programs and places. When Neenah Paper asked me to show the best part of my city through drawings for their new promotional book I chose to show how creative this city is, as opposed to representing the obvious (insert The White House and Abraham Lincoln here). You can read more about the Neenah Paper project here....

DC ARTS ICONS FOR NEENAH PAPER

A few months back I was asked to create a page of illustrations that highlighted and aspect of the city I live in. Washington, D.C. is an interesting place with many histories and layers of complexity. There ARE people who have lived in DC their whole life, believe it or not. I moved here about 6 years ago for graduate school. It took awhile to find my place but thriving creative community is where I have landed.

 

So when Neenah Paper decided to contact up and coming artist in up and coming cities to highlight their favorite parts I chose to create a page of icon representations of my favorite Arts organizations and places. The legend is as follows: 1. The Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts 2. The Phillips Collection 3. Comet Ping Pong 4. Hamiltonian Gallery 5. Art Enables 6. Sixth and I Synagogue 7. Black Cat 8. Shakespeare Theatre Company 9. Dance Place 10. Atlas Performing Arts Center 11. The Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden 12. Flashpoint Gallery 13. Capital Fringe 14. National Gallery of Art

My Funny Valentine

So this year I got my "things" together and made a few special cards for the day of the year where we love and hug and give big candy hearts. My favorites are the "You are a real gem." flat cards that come in sets of 4 for $8. Seal it with a snazzy sticker and you've got one gorgeous little Valentine.

Next there is the hilarious "You belong here. On a pedestal" card. I love this guy! I came up with this illustration over a year ago around Father's Day but wasn't sure if it was really THAT funny. I've decided that I would definitely like to get this in the mail or find it waiting for me on my desk from my Valentine, so voila! You can order these guys in sets of 4 for $8 bucks too.

Last but not least the "Little Kisses" cards are beautifully printed on cotton card stock. These babes are blank on the back so you can send to your sweetie any time of year or use as Thank You notes. The color is so vibrant these lips literally jump off of the paper. It might be a small card but it's definitely got a big pop! Stock up because these come in sets of 4 for only $6 dollars.

Hand written notes are one of the best things in the world. Whether they are hung on the wall later, stuck to your fridge, or put safely in a box to rediscover, I try to make cards you'll want to send and keep! Happy Valentine's Day. xx
